Day 40...

They say it takes 30 days to form a new habit.

Today makes day 40 of eliminating meats (beef, pork, and poultry) from my diet. I do eat fish/shellfish. I must say poultry has been the hardest to give up. I got a whiff of sausage a few days ago and it made me nauseous. I also stepped up my daily activity. I'm loving hot yoga, but totally frustrated that I still can't get some of the poses. I'm determined to be a runner. If I can run a 5k by Autumn, it will make me so proud. No I didn't get a bad report from my doctor. I'm doing this for me! And my daughter. I want her to see a positive image of a black woman in her house. Someone who is fit in mind and body. Below are a few inspirational quotes that keep me going on my new fit and healthy journey. Enjoy your weekend! Walk the dog, if you don't have a dog borrow your neighbors.

Wrist Candy...

Everywhere you look women are adorning their wrists with bracelets. Lots of bracelets. I love the look. Mix it up with gold and silver bracelets. Or various colors of stretch bracelets. Vintage bracelets with modern bracelets. Whatever makes your wrists happy. I recently made some bracelets and added sterling silver charms. The ones shown below are great for the yogi or runner chick. Go here to purchase.

Sterling silver lotus flower with turquoise and coral gemstones.

Sterling silve marathon runner and "gotta run" charm with rose quartz.

Sterling silver namaste charm with pewter beads.


One happy wrist.

Quiet Places...

I stay busy as I'm sure most of you do as well. I can't remember the last time I had a week that wasn't hectic. What I enjoy after a long day is to find a quiet place in my home and read a book or a magazine. Usually it's in my bedroom. Currently I am reading The Warmth Of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson.

Where do you like to read? Check out these cozy, quiet places and spaces.

Fun floor pillows make an ideal spot for reading.

I love the neon pink table in this home library.

Reading at dusk with ocean waves gently roaring in the background. So peaceful and serene.

A comfy chair by the window in a bedroom that has simple, clean lines. Nice.
